Disney+ Day 2021 is here, and it’s kicking into high gear with brand new announcements coming out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with what’s to come from the streaming service. During Marvel Studios’ 2021 Disney+ Day Special — which is currently now streaming exclusively on Disney+ — viewers got a first look at Iman Vellani, who plays Kamala Kahn, aka Ms. Marvel.

Ms. Marvel introduces viewers to Kamala, a 16-year old Pakistani American from Jersey City.  An aspiring artist, an avid gamer, and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers — and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world — that is until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel. Episodes are directed by Executive Producers Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

To celebrate the first two years of the service and all the new content to come, Disney+ invited fans to join the community with a special, limited-time offer. New and eligible returning subscribers in the US and select countries got one month of Disney+ for $1.99 (then $7.99/mo.) by signing up at Disney+, and joining in on all of the Disney+ Day celebrations.
